feature of this will be a city of

is characteristic of the expedient

ed for Chicago, and after a brief
sojourn there he expects to pro
ceed to Pittsburg, : Pa. The
General goes East to perfect the
patent and oversee- the construc
tion of an agricultural automobile
which he has invented. -
.This machine . is . very unique,
in its conception ; it is designed
for a variety, of uses. f It' is in
tended for supplying motive

drawing water, lor sawing wood,

General Thoip calls it an agri
cultural automobile. It is said
y him that the machine is of
tripod, construction, as it has
three legs. But the legs in this
case are wheels ana it win De
commonly known as a' tricycle
machine. It will be worked by
easoline eneine and may be

It is " to be of all-metal con
struction not a bit or wood
about it. Wheels will have
steel tires, and only the finest oi
metal will be utilized in con
structing this new machine.
General Thorp . expects to be
East about 30 days. It is his
desire to have his agricultural
automobile constructed, thor
oughly tested, and in every way ,
perfected by the opening of the
Lewis and Clark Fair, as he
wishes to place it on exhibition
at the Exposition. : From . what

Prof. S. F. Haroun, " well
known in this county; is still in
trouble. First his wife sued him
for divorce on grourds of infideli
ty, then his sister,. Mrs. Lottir

charge of obtaining money undtr

which was paid by the purchas
ers. Attorney Kissinger, stated to a
Register reporter that commenc
ing nextThursday morning classes
would be resumed at the college
and that all those who had -"paid
their tuition would be welcome
to resume their studies. New
pupils will also be welcomed. The
new proprietors are casting about
for a corps of teachers and. in
structors and it will be the pur
pose of the pew administration to
place the institution upon a high
plane of efficiency.

Professor Haroun is still in the
county jail, not yet having given
bonds. Saturday evening ten
men j it is said, offered to give a
cash bond for the professor's re
lease, but it is said that his attor-
neys advised them not to do so
yet. Just whv is not explained.
Attorney Kissinger this morning
informed a Guard reporter that
they do not want their client
to secure bonds for a little time
yet. i. It is probable that they fig
ure upon a settlement of the case
soon, but it is strange that they
should want to keep the man in
jail when it is apparent that
bonds cou'd easily be procured.
There has been a general ru-
mor that Mrs. lvouie oiewan,
wbo caused the arrest of her
brother, is preparing to return
to her home at Seymour, Wis ,
and that the prosecntion will be
dropped. The Guard is reliably
informed that she will not re
turn to her home until the case
conies to trial. The fact that she
is shipping her household goods
to her husband at Seymour prob
ably gave rise to the rumor.
Last Saturday a -500-pound
brll for the Catholic church in
trrs.city arrived from Philadel
phia. The bell is supposed to
be of the finest quality of: bell-;,
metal and cost laid dow n in this
city in the neighborhood of $150.
For manv years memWrs of
this church have desired a bell, as
have the various Fathers located
here, but they felt that as the
church was not large in member'
ship they could scarcely afford it."
During the past winter Father
Springer resorted to every means
within his pwer to secure money
with which to purchase the bell.'
The money was . raised, the bell'
is here and paid for.
Now, another problem con-,
fronts Father Springer the mat-;
ter of hanging the bell. . There!
is no tower to the church and"
means of building a steeple must,
be forthcGnvng. It is thought
some time during - next month
the.ladies of the Catholic church
will , hold what is known as a
' 'lair" and see what can be raisi;
ed for the erection of a steeple.
